GRATEFUL GLIMPSES
(4/2/17)

if we
are lucky

we catch
flashes

fleeting
shadows

of the absolute
along the trail
of our days

instances
that can be
easily missed
during the mundane
madness
of our schedules

but once seen
they remind us
that something greater
is out there

a temporary
vision
that links us
to that which
is permanent

a reality
that transcends
this earthly
puppet show

something
to sustain us
throughout
our petty
social rounds

as a race
we are fortunate
that the majority
only notice
these impressions
momentarily

for if we
we were exposed
to any greater
awareness

little
of our worldly
affairs
would be
accomplished

we would see
the pointlessness
of our usual
worries

society
would be reduced
to a more primitive
nature

perhaps
we would return
to wander
the wilderness

live in
tents

caves

concerned
only
with the necessities
of survival

able again
to hear
the forgotten voice
of our creator
